If I can name my toon Jammer, lock him in a room with no doors, and feed him tacos till he shits himself to death, I’m in!


You can.

Although, I like watching them suffer and drown in the pool when you take the ladders out.


Wife will want this game… I will want to destroy it

I’m torn between this and cities skylines. If cities dropped in price, it would be no comparison. I like having a mindless game to go to after a hard day.

I didn’t know Todd Howard had control over the Sims. Finally getting a 3 year old game onto the Xbox One!

My favorite Sims torture is naming a girl Samara and then locking her in a room with a circular stone structure.

It’s not enough that my girlfiend steals the xbox from me to watch Netflix now she’ll play The Sims. smh.

There’s just something about creating a family and playing god with their lives that strikes certain emotional chords. For some, it’s a tale of love and dedication. For others, it’s a tale of malice and sick glee. Either way, we certainly learn a little bit about ourselves and our hopes for the human race. Or something like that. Anyway we found out just three short days ago that The Sims 4 was coming to consoles. Now we get to hear a bit more from Executive Producer Lyndsay Pearson on the matter:

The addition of a console-version of The Sims 4 has been long-awaited by fans and newcomers alike, and we at Maxis are beyond excited to bring The Sims to new platforms…The game delivers a beautiful The Sims experience on console and comes packed with tons of the fan-favourite content, so players can look forward to the unique gameplay, self-expression, and fun that have come to be tentpoles of The Sims brand. The possibilities to play with life are as endless as the players’ creativity.

Which one of these fine folks will wet themselves tonight when all doors and windows in their room are removed?

Sounds like The Sims. But what does it look like? A better version of The Sims if today’s trailer is any indication.

The Sims 4 will launch on November 17th. You can get it three days early by pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition while EA Access members will get their free trial the standard five days before release.
